Worker safety is a mandatory requirement in today’s industry. Since safety is everyone's responsibility, it is essential to protect people while keeping production imperatives in mind. In recent years, we have seen an increase in machine guarding with metal protection. Steel guards for belt conveyors, although safe, leads to operational problems and even certain hazards that could cause injuries.

A conveyor belt is the carrying medium of a belt conveyor system (often shortened to belt conveyor). A belt conveyor system is one of many types of conveyor systems. A belt conveyor system consists of two or more pulleys (sometimes referred to as drums), with an endless loop of carrying medium—the conveyor belt—that rotates about them. One or both of the pulleys are powered, moving the belt and the material on the belt forward. The powered pulley is called the drive pulley while the unpowered pulley is called the idler pulley. There are two main industrial classes of belt conveyors; Those in general material handling such as those moving boxes along inside a factory and bulk material handling such as those used to transport large volumes of resources and agricultural materials, such as grain, salt, coal, ore, sand, overburden and more. Belt Conveyor is a kind of conveying machine which transport materials from one place to another place continuously. Belt conveyor machine consists of conveyor frame, conveyor belt, conveyor pulley, conveyor rollers, tension devices, driving unit and other components etc. Belt conveyor system can transport materials in bulk and bagged, such as stone, sand, coal, concrete, cement, gravel, fertilizer, mineral ore, limestone, coke, sawdust, wood chip, bulk material, grain, corn flakes, carbon black, etc. Belt Conveyor Guarding Solutions will benefit you by…
